New Building Wiring

This project for a customer in Welland started with a directional bore shot to run wire to supply power from a substation to a main disconnect for a new building. Inside wire was run to connect the main disconnect, to the transformer, to a panel. EMT conduit was then installed through the ceiling as well as down the walls to device boxes which feed LED lights, overhead fans, welding plugs, receptacles, and switches. In this photo one of our guys is working from an aerial lift, feeding wire down through EMT conduit to feed a device box that will house receptacles.

Wire Pull

Our crew has spent the winter months rock drilling, tree cutting, and installing hydro poles for a 5kv to a 27.6kv conversion. The final push is on for the completion of this conversion that involves the large reel of wire shown here. This wire is 3/0 28KV 1 conductor that wraps around a 96" reel and sits on a stand that was built specifically for it. Our crew will spend the next few days pulling this wire in underground and completing terminations. These large reels are becoming the norm at SGC. Way to go team!

Directional Drilling

Our crew is using our directional drill for conduit and wire to supply power. The directional drill method drastically reduces the amount of restoration that would need to be performed in the traditional trenching method. We have the capability to drill 400+ feet horizontally. A great option when open trenching presents challenges.

Pole Line Hardware Removal

Our crew were up in buckets stripping a 5 KV power line and removing a 3-phase underground dip from an existing pole. This was all in preparation for a conversion from a 5KV to a 27.6 KV service.

Temporary Feeds

Our crew worked to replace a temporary power feed for the Burlington Skyway lighting and overhead signs along the QEW. They ran the new cable feed up the cable tray of the support structure and across into junction boxes.

Rock Drilling

There is a lot of prep work that goes into setting a new utility pole. Our crew has spent the week rock drilling for pole anchors to be set into the ground.
